Help with iMovie and Sony Handycam 110

I just recently bought the Sony Handycam HDR-CX110. I'm not sure if this has already been posted or not, but I have a MacBook version 10.4.11, and cannot upload the video. My question to you guys is that if I need to upgrade my version of my computer as well as my iMovie in order for this to work. I know the format of the video is mts and is suppose to work with imovie 08, but tried it and could only get the SD video to upload and none of the HD video, which is what I want and why I bought the camera. Still not sure if the upgrade of the macbook and to iMovie 09 will make it work or not? My other option is buy a PC specifically for video editing, which I don't want to do at all! Thanks for any help and input!
